A Back-to-School Bash! Canyons District Night with Real Salt Lake is Sept. 4

The chill in the air means that summer has fallen to autumn. The change of seasons also means it’s time for Canyons District to come alive with a back-to-school buzz.

Since Monday, Aug. 16, students have been back in class, preparing themselves to be college- and career-ready when they graduate from high school.  Our teachers and Education Support Professionals are hard at work in classrooms, buses, hallways, cafeterias and gymnasiums.

To celebrate the start of the 2021-2022 school year, Real Salt Lake is hosting Canyons District Night at Rio Tinto Stadium. The Saturday, Sept. 4 event, featuring a game against FC Dallas, will be a celebration of students, educators, parents, volunteers and community partners.

Discount tickets to the 6 p.m. game can be purchased by clicking here.

Free WiFi • Canyons Connects Families with Internet Access

Try imagining life without computers. Impossible, right? Technology has changed how we consume news and entertainment, make travel plans, stay in touch with our friends, shop, and even learn. 

Yet, a surprising number of Canyons District students — 10 to 15 percent — have no access to a computer or reliable Internet at home. 

As part of ongoing efforts to bridge the digital divide for students, Canyons is again partnering with the Comcast Corporation to cover monthly Internet connection costs for families in need. The program, coupled with investments to build Canyons’ stockpile of computing devices, aims to ensure all students — those learning online and inside the classroom — are equipped to succeed.

Applying for free WiFi through Comcast Essentials is easy. Here’s how:

  • Call your child’s school and ask for the person over Internet Essentials.
  • If you qualify for the program, the school will provide you with a sign-up code.
  • Call 844-963-0178 and provide Comcast with your sign-up code. You will also be asked to provide your home address and to choose if you want the WiFi equipment shipped to you, installed by a technician, or held for pickup at a local Xfinity location. 
  • The Internet subscription is valid through June 15, 2022.

Not all home addresses are eligible for Comcast connectivity. Our offer of subsidized WiFi is only available within Comcast’s service area.
